        DELHI TOWNSHIP — The teen-age driver of a Jeep Grand Cherokee that crashed on Hillside Avenue on June 9, killing two 13-year-old girls, was charged Wednesday with two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide.

        The 16-year-old girl, charged as a juvenile, was also charged with four counts of vehicular assault, said Sgt. Kevin Keehan of Delhi Township. The teen was released to the custody of her parents, he said.

        Anna Destefano and Kelli Ridenour, both from Delhi Township, were killed in the crash.

        They were two of 11 teens who were in the sports utility vehicle that apparently went out of control and crashed on a winding section of Hillside Avenue about 1:25 p.m. The nine other teens were hospitalized.

        Most of the teens were students at Delhi Middle School.
